Sharon Stone won the Woman of the Year Award on Thursday at the 2019 GQ Men of the Year Awards in Berlin, asking for a chair to be brought on stage to reenact the moment that changed her life from Paul Verhoeven’s Basic Instinct (1992), according to Entertainment Tonight. The sixty-one-year-old star told the audience to cross and uncross their legs along with her, reconstructing the most iconic (or infamous) part of the performance which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Stone says she had to fight hard for Woman of the Year after being a joke for so long.
